Southport, CT – Carter Morse & Goodrich is thrilled to announce that it is once again proudly sponsoring the tenth year of Push for Entrepreneurship (“PFE”) in 2023! Michael Carter founded PFE in 2014 to be a unique and exhilarating event that challenges participants to push their limits physically and mentally. Last year, Push for Entrepreneurship raised over $70,000 and brought entrepreneurial programs to 2,500 low-income students from across the state of Connecticut.
“The instinct to create, to build, and to invent is a fundamental quality in young people,” says Michael Carter. “Unfortunately, the opportunity to exercise these instincts is not nearly so common. With Push For Entrepreneurship, we’re helping democratize these critical innovation education programs by making them program available to all schools.”
Every dollar raised will be donated to the Connecticut Invention Convention (CIC), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to teaching innovation and developing an entrepreneurial mindset. All raised funds are operated in a restricted fund, with funds only allocated towards programming, supplies, scholarships, and other resources for low-income communities.
“It’s really something special,” says Nick Briere, Executive Director of the Connecticut Invention Convention. “Push For Entrepreneurship has become the largest financial contributor to our organization. Hundreds of Pushers, donors, inventors, parents, and community members come together and push themselves for a better future. We’ve moved from a time where less than half of CIC inventors were from below-median-income communities, to today, where that number is nearly ninety percent.”
With CMG’s sponsorship of PFE 2023, the firm is committed to making a difference in the lives of students from underserved communities, particularly those in Bridgeport, Norwalk, Hartford, and New Haven. The funds generated will be used to expand CIC’s programming in these cities, giving young learners the opportunity to enhance their analytical skills, unleash their creativity, and discover their potential as inventors and entrepreneurs.
